Dear Donny
The moment you cut down on that beer, or stop drinking it all together you will start losing weight. Alcohol provides 29 kJ/g, so it has the second highest energy content besides fat! In addition I would recommend that you reduce your fat intake by eating a low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'Slimming Diet') and start doing some intensive targeted exercise that concentrates on the problem areas. Join a good gym or ask Fitness Doc for a workout programme. Using all kinds of diet aids is not the answer - YOU need to make the necessary lifestyle changes to achieve your goal.
Good luck
